Description:

"We remember Jack's Prelude to Spring a few years ago in which he dealt with time lapse photography. In Floral Capers he introduces the equipment he uses in time lapse photography and how he does it in one easy lesson. We watch flowers go through the opening cycle, vines racing up a pole, grasses, plants, and flowers racing ahead in their growth, split frame emphasizes the stimulation of light on the growth of plants. We watch many interesting events in the life of plants, and some amusing ones" PSA Journal, Nov. 1960, 40.
